Washing machine not spinning during cycle

My Miele washing machine has stopped spinning/draining properly during the cycle & clothes are coming out soaking wet. If I put it on a separate drain/spin it works ok.
Any ideas what I can do to fix it please?
I have cleaned the filter and run a hot empty cycle with soda crystals

Anybody? I know it's a boring post, particularly for a weekend!

Do you get any error messages? I have a Siemens and had similar issue, impeller had a hairband tangled round it

is it draining properly?
would try cleaning the filter first and then running an empty boil wash.

There is a red 'detergent' light at the end of the wash but that has been there since before this problem started. Maybe I shouldn't have ignored it for so long.
It drains properly on a separate drain & spin cycle but not on a standard cycle.
What's an impellar?

Hi Pigs

Did you ever get to the bottom of this? My Miele is doing exactly the same. I clean the filter regularly so I don't think that's it. I was hopping this morning to find the load I put in before bed last night was still wringing wet - I had wanted to hang it outside before going to work but didn't have time to wait for it to spin again.

Similar thing happened to me. Turned out the brushes needed replacing. Common issue. Just call out a domestic appliances firm and they should be able to fix it. Cost me £60 call-out + £35 brushes.

This happened to us last week...brushes needed replacing

Thank you. I'd better ring Miele hmm.

I wouldn't mind, but the machine is only just over 2 years old!
